[05.18.2015] Even though I am not on the task force, I visited a few of the more likely candidate locations for an interim course and made the following notes:
Future Task Force meetings have been set and are public meetings. I would encourage you to attend to show your support and to help provide ideas for the Task Force. All meetings will be held at Deerfield Community Center:
I have just returned from the Community Services Commission Meeting where we discussed the future of the Deerfield Community Park disc golf course. Here is my understanding of what occurred and what decisions were made. If you have any follow-up questions, or would like to know how to contribute, please contact me at doug at irvinediscgolfclub.com
I have added my name into the hat to be on the task force, but if I am not selected, I will receive email updates form the task force which I can pass along here.
If you play disc golf at the Deerfield Community Disc Golf course in Irvine, YOUR ACTION IS NEEDED!
On April 15th, 2015, The City of Irvine Community Services Commission will meet at 5:30 PM to "discuss and hear resident concerns regarding disc golf play at Deerfield Community Park". Reminiscent of when they tried to shut down the course in 2008, the disc golf community needs to once again band together and show a united front to fight for our course!
We encourage anyone who has played on the Deerfield Community park course to come and voice your opinions on how much you love the sport and the course.

Hole 4 & 5 have been impacted by a recent change to the course layout.
Pin #4 has been pulled closer to the tee, and is now in the center of the driving lane, instead of sheltered in between the trees near tee #5. In addition, tee #5 has been moved closer to pin #5, look for the newly relocated cement trash can and tee sign. This move takes the first copse of trees out of the flight path. I suspect this was done because of the close proximity of hole #4 and tee #5.
